Worst local train
Mar 2021 • Couples
Naam bade darshan chotte is perfectly applicable to such train. The wifi isn't working and the tv are also not working. Even the washroom were not clean when visited second time. The train never reached on time neither it started on time from Karmali. So the express word doesn't suite this train . The reason it is promoted as different then other is also false at is like other coaches only. Food is also not of much variety. With rice and one sabzi for both dinner and Lunch for atleast vegetarians.

Worst experience

Worst experience...booked Executive coach...but they don't serve food...food is not inclusive..that could becoz of covid..but IRCTC should inform the passenger in advance before booking the tickets...people should avoid booking executive class.. instead they can book normal AC coach...

Rename Tejas to AC Bus
Jan 2021
Travelled to Karmali & back by Tejas during Republic Day Weekend. Lets hit the reviews in detail:

Pros:
1) Departed CSMT & arrived Karmali on time
2) Limited stoppages.

Cons:
1) No service at all. Though I was aware about this but expected atleast drinking water bottles & snacks hampers to be given complimentary but sadly was disappointed.
2) 1200 Rs is surely too too expensive for this route specially for a chair car journey
3) Though its advertised heavily in the train about FREE WIFI but it DOESN'T WORK at ALL. Also the in-flight entertainment screens are broken at many places and even they DON'T WORK AT ALL.
4) Most weird & absurd logic given by IRCTC is that they have stopped full service citing Covid 19 Mess but still the IRCTC staff sells dry snacks, softdrinks, water, lunch, dinner etc on board the train. I am wondering what's COVID 19 got to do with this as the staff any ways comes in direct contact with passengers, food items, cutlery, tea coffee cups, washroom etc. In my opinion, this is simply a money minting exercise to recover losses suffered during the lockdown period etc.
5) Worst part is the train compartments becomes filthy like anything when it reaches CSMT. During our return journey there was leftover food packets, water bottles, other rubbish etc all over the coach. Not that facility guys were not cleaning it, they were walking around with bin bags at regular intervals to collect it. But this happens coz of the buy on board services, as people just throw it wherever they found places.
6) Train is FULLY BOOKED AND ALL SEATS ETC are occupied, no sanitisation, no so called deep cleaning, no disinfectants nothing.

In a nutshell, AVOID THIS TRAIN AT ALL COSTS !! Rather book an overnight sleeper train in advance if you want to visit Karmali / Goa. We had to book this as we did a last minute kinda booking but this train is nothing but a modified version of AC Bus now.

There are better and cheap options available against Tejas. Stay away from this one.

Loved our journey.!
Nov 2020 • Family
The best part of this train is cleanliness. They first sanitized our luggage and checks our temperature. After we get our seats they provide us shield guard, sanitizer, mask and gloves. And also they provides good quality food. We loved it's service and staff's corporation. They also cleans the path in the coach many times so that they can keep everything clean.
Loved it!!

Travelled from Mumbai to Vapi on chair car. Good and neat coach and seat, started and reached on time. Provided water bottle and evening snacks with tea and butter milk. Work for the cost and good alternate to flight and people love to see the kind of train services in future. Running at speed of 130KMPH and less noice and good comfort

Tejas - Goa to Mumbai - Executive Class
Feb 2020 • Family
It is a over-hyped train. Essentially railway is charging us more for the same product which is Shatabdi Express. Here is the detailed review

Punctuality: The train arrived 45 minutes late at 245. Instead of scheduled departure time of 240PM, it started at 315 PM from Karmali. It was running about 30-45 minutes late till Chiplun but ran faster after and reached Panvel about 15 minutes early. Rating 4.5/5

Station: Karmali station is absolutely horrible. There is no electronic display board anywhere. Someone had written coach position in pen & paper and posted near the ticket counter. The platform is only part covered, meaning most people had to stand on the hot mid-day sun waiting for the delayed arrival. Rating (1/5)

Inside Train: Exec class has ample space. Huge glass windows provides fantastic view into the beautiful Konkan coast. Both Aisle and Window seat has equally good view. Audio visual entertainment screens are not functioning. Most of the route (till Panvel) mobile signal is very patchy. The VuRail wifi mobile entertainment system has very limited content. Keep couple of books handy else you would get terribly bored. Rating (3/5)
Food: While booking the ticket , one can opt out of the train food. Otherwise you are charged Rs 700 per person. I wanted to experience this one; what a fool I was. Served Lunch 15-30 minutes after departure. It had 1L water, starter (onion pakoda), roti,rice, alu sabji, kaali daal, chicken curry , sheera and curd. The lunch tasted less than average. Snacks was provided about 3 hours into the journey - onion pakoda, tea, kachodi,cheese sandwich, chocolate and a mixture packet. Dinner was served around 830PM. It had the exactly same menu as lunch - "mind of a genius at work". Rating (1/5)

Overall I liked the fact that the train arrived at my destination before time. My recommendation is to opt out of the food option at the booking stage itself. Also avoid Exec class; chair car is good enough to enjoy the ontime performance.

Horrible Tejas experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
We travelled on 16th from Ahmedabad to BCT. BY COACH C6;,I MADE COMPLAINT TO THEIR HELP LINE ALSO . WE R USED TO Shatabdi & we compare with it . By 7.00 i got water bottle on Seat. In Shatabdi water bottle is already placed on the stand . The moment Shatabdi starts we start getting tea & snacks . In Tejas till Nadiyad you won't get it . Especially A.C .IS MAITAINED THROUGH OUT THE JOURNEY. IN TEJAS ! TILL Borivali tempreture was almost 25 to 26 . After making complaint in writing nearly after one hour the A C flow was cooler but not like Shatabdi , Tejas being privately operated ,penny wise attitude on cost cutting , & that to A C keeping very high is not expected at all . Food menu is horrible , Early morning Poha semincold & half cooked with Sauces & COLD Dahi ! Just can't imagine . Diabetic patients should totally refrain from this as u do not get without sugarTea or Coffee, in lunch there is no roti , compulsory rice, biryani , &;again Dahi . Compare the quality of food Shatabdi is much better, compare Fare ,Shatabadi is cheaper, compare satisfaction Shatabadi is much higher , compare service Shatabdi is faster , well i will think 10 times before opting Tejas .only in case of no option i may select this else ,take care of ur self,have ur own thermos flask & eatables with you. Sad thing in privatisation . All privatised trains Should mention what AC tempreture will be MAITAINED through out journey ,else refund of charges should be imposed on them .As there is no accountability ,no wonder many companies r in the race to have their share in privatisation of Railways .

Not worth the price
Jan 2020 • Family
Entertainment screens installed but not working. Charging points given, but not working. Same food given for the lunch and dinner. And finally the sanitation is no better than the normal trains. Wondering why is it priced so high. But definitely not worth the money.
